    We had the family suite with balcony. Pay the extra for the balcony! Amazing views! The staff were incredibly friendly. We loved the location. Very close to train station. Lucerne is a beautiful city!

    The dinner in the restaurant was probably among one of the best meals ever and the location overlooking the river is beautiful,the staff were excellent,polite and attentive. My only criticism would be that the bedroom was very small but otherwise great.
